"Loyalty to country always. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it."
-- Mark Twain
Reportedly John Fogerty has obtained a "cease and desist" order requiring the Trump campaign
to stop using "Fortunate Son" at their campaign rallies.
Have these people ever listened to the lyrics; tax evasion, avoiding military service.etc.
The clown at the podium epitomizes all about which Fogerty wrote.
Maybe they should the words on the big screen with a picture of their leader.
The most egregious example of this is Reagan using "Born in the USA" in 1984.
None of the boomers who voted for Reagan (or went to a Bruce concert) actually listened to the lyrics.
Here they are:
Born down in a dead man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
'Til you spend half your life just coverin' up
Born in the U.S.A
I was born in the U.S.A
Got in a little hometown jam
So they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land
To go and kill the yellow man
Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says, "Son if it was up to me"
Went down to see my V.A. man
He said, "Son, don't you understand"
I had a brother at Khe Sanh
Fighting off the Viet Cong
They're still there, he's all gone
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
I'm ten years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go
I was born in the U.S.A. now
I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now
I'm a cool rockin' Daddy in the U.S.A. now
